In The Taverns of Tiefenthal, players try to build up their tavern in an effort to turn it into the talk of the town. This game, designed by Wolfgang Warsh, adds dice placement mechanics to a deck-building game. The goal of the game is for players to skillfully choose dice to place and develop their deck of cards to attract noble customers and expand their bar. After eight complete rounds, players count up the victory points on their customer cards, and the player with the highest total wins.
